It is very difficult for a starting pitcher to start.
Hanwha Eagles right-hander Han Seung-hyeok made his fourth start this season against the Kiwoom Heroes on the 25th. However, it was the first start in 27 days. On June 28, in a match against KT Wiz, he pitched 3 innings, followed by a long gap.
He recently made one appearance as a relief pitcher rather than a starter. In order to check his condition, he faced three batters in the NC Dinos game on July 21st.
There were no injuries during that time. After reorganization at the Futures team, he returned to the first team on June 2 and continued to be in the first team entry.
Han Seung-hyeok, who started the season with a relief pitch, switched to starting. He failed to give credence as a reliever. Kim Min-woo left the team due to an injury, and Jang Min-jae joined the starting lineup as he went down to the Futures League due to poor pitch.
However, from the end of June, rain canceled matches one after another. With the cancellation of the game, there was room in the schedule, and the 1st to 3rd starters Felix Pena, Ricardo Sanchez, and Moon Dong-ju were intensively put in. The 4th and 5th starters lost their chance to pitch.
There was a situation where the starting pitcher could not start for nearly a month. The NC match on the 23rd was canceled due to rain, so the schedule could be adjusted, but coach Choi Won-ho sent Han Seung-hyuk as a starter to the Heroes match as scheduled.
Could it be because he lost his pitching rhythm due to the long hiatus? Han Seung-hyuk failed to complete the third inning and passed the mound to the bullpen. He missed the hard-earned opportunity.안전놀이터
He got three hits in the first inning and gave up the first run. In the 3rd inning, the ball suddenly shook. He let out lead hitter Lee Yong-gyu with a heavy hit, and then he allowed 2 runs with 3 4 balls and 2 sacrifice hits.
2⅔innings, 4 hits, 4 balls, 3 runs, 3 runs.
Han Seung-hyuk is scheduled to start against SSG Landers on the 30th.
